    Great memories and I’m already looking forward to next year when hopefully things will be back to normal. I’ll really miss it this year though. Such a shame given all the effort that Ann and Alan and others put into arranging it.

    Perhaps we should set up a virtual meeting in the bar on Saturday night. I have plenty of beer since my local brewery is making home deliveries and I’m trying to keep it in business.

    Good idea, Nick. Sounds like you are buying.

    Perhaps we should all crowd fund a new jacket for Alan for 2021?

    It’s the least we could do after the stress he’s suffered!

    I do have some Thatchers too although it is running out.

    As long as that only involves virtual money that’s fine.

    My first Winchester Weekend was 1975. I attach the agenda. Dick Chambers talk on Star Atlases stands out in my memory because the atlases he brought along were, to a 17 year old, highly desirable!

    Ahh….those were the days when you had to ensure you had the correct affiliation as FRAS or RN.

    Pauline, what a very cruel posting on today of all days.   You know how to twist the knife…

    About now I would be saying a teary goodbye to my cats whilst my wife packs my Winchester bag.  Then off to pick a few others up before heading down to bring some much needed warm Brummie cheer to the locals of the sleepy village of East Ilsley and the Crown and Horns pub in particular.  Then off in convoy to Sparsholt to revel in my 43rd Winchester meeting.   Instead, what am I doing this weekend?   Scouring the dark, grimy back streets of Kingstanding in North Brum to find a dozen black market eggs.

    Thanks Pauline – my old mate!

    Managed to obtain a flux capacitor and flared trousers.  Heading to 1975 for weekend.

    Program looks fantastic.

    Hi Gary! I am finding the supply of eggs in Sheffield to be highly variable. Would you like me to draw a curve when I have made enough observations…?

    Very best!
